In Windows, I used to "Map Network Drive" and voila, it worked and was there when I started. This is what I would like to happen on Ubuntu, with a slight twist.
I'd like to, shall we say, "remap", my home folders
/home/user/video /home/user/pictures/ /home/user/downloads/ /home/user/... (insert useful name here)
To their actual location on my NAS. I'm using a GoFlex Home Storage Device (if that makes a difference).
So, when I start-up, and go to
/home/user/pictures/ I'm actually going to
I'm not familiar with the path structures of linux, so if you say "add X" to your "Y" you should be including where I can find Y.
Bonus Points: A secondary issues I'm having right now is that Video's seem to stop after 2-5 seconds of viewing when I watch them over AFP, not sure if this is the same protocol that is used to mount but that's an additional problem.
Here's what I've tried so far, editing
sudo mount -a says "Go fstab yourself".
//192.168.0.13/GoFlex\040Home\040Personal/Pictures /home/brandon/Pictures cifs username=bbertelsen, password=****,_netdev,uid=brandon 0 0 //192.168.0.13/GoFlex\040Home\040Personal/Music /home/brandon/Music cifs username=bbertelsen, password=****,_netdev,uid=brandon 0 0 //192.168.0.13/GoFlex\040Home\040Personal/Downloads /home/brandon/Downloads cifs username=bbertelsen, password=****,_netdev,uid=brandon 0 0 //192.168.0.13/GoFlex\040Home\040Personal/Videos /home/brandon/Videos cifs username=bbertelsen, password=****,_netdev,uid=brandon 0 0
One time mounting seems to work exactly as I would expect it to.
sudo mount -t cifs '//192.168.0.13/GoFlex Home Personal/Pictures' /home/brandon/Pictures -o username=bbertelsen,password=****,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777
